POSTAVENIE VEL'KOOBCHODOV V SYSTEME DISTRIBUCIE POTRAVINARSKYCH VYROBKOV NA SLOVENSKU

An analysis of a group of wholesale firms specializing in supplies of retailers with food products in Slovakia points at their considerable differentiation in terms of size, performance, assortment and equipment. The mean sale area of a wholesale store is 392 m2 and its mean storage ground is approximately three times higher (1,291m2). The average number of employees is 22.8, producing on average the annual sales of 102.9 mil. SKK per wholesale firm. The firms run by owners are larger, with higher performance, than the rented ones. From the viewpoint of location, the smallest size and the lowest turnover are achieved by the wholesalers in the centre of city. On the other hand, the biggest and most effective wholesale stores are located in villages. There are also great differences in the assortment offered. All of the wholesale firms under investigation (30) deal with sales of flour, pastries and they very rarely offer red meat and meat products (20 %). The widest assortment was found in alcoholic drinks (129 different kinds), whilst the poorest offer was detected in eggs and soft sheep cheese bryndza (1 or 2 kinds). The highest share of foreign products was observed in fruits (53%), cigarettes (49%) and pastries (44%). Milk, cream, soft cheese, bread, milling and bakery products, poultry meat and products made of it were only of domestic origin.
